An Improved C.A.S.

This is my latest NXT creation. It has 4 US sensors and 2 servos. It is supposed to avoid collisions and drops. It acuually works quite well.The program is divided into 2 parts, front and back. The robot will travel forewards untill either of the front sensors are tripped. When one is tripped it sends a "true" value to a filter block which says "if 1 or 2 trues are recieved, send true" This block sends "true" to the split, which then takes the appropriate action. While it backs up, it runs a similar process for the back sensors. It is surprisingly light, while being very solid. The wires are a bit of a mess, but I blame TLC for only including 1 short wire. I used a brace system to stop the tracks from bending upwards. I hope you like it.

Brickfest PDX Photos

I took some photos at Brickfest, so here's a slideshow

see the photo set on Flickr or the same photos but with videos too at Picasa

Note: I may take down the slideshow soon because it's taking up space in my Flickr photostream and I don't want to have to shell out $25 for a storage upgrade.

Butt Scratcher

Yet again I display my amazing(ly immature) sense of humor, this time with a minifig, having set down his flamethrower-like-device, scratching his rear

The Orange Menace Needs a Dentist

One major downside of the carnage brought by the late professor's creation was the lack of good dentists who had not been eaten.

You've lowered my salary one time too many, Mr Burns

Alright, I admit it, I painted the zombie.
